Regional distribution

For administrative purposes the societies/clubs affiliated with NZPF are separated into one of three regions – Northern, Central or Southern –  [see About us for more information].  Within each of these regions there are societies having a National perspective due to the interests and geographical spread of their members.  In addition, there is one society based overseas – the NZ Society of Great Britain. These societies have been grouped in the website under ‘National/Overseas’.

Society pages

Each of Federation’s affiliated societies has a page which provides details of where and when they hold their meetings, describe the services they offer members and provide information about how to contact them.
